Tenancy Agreements (England)

Change of tenant’s name following marriage

26 Jan 2018 | 2 comments

Our tenants have recently got married, is it necessary to amend the Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement to reflect the change of name?

    No, there’s no need to make a change as it’s still the same person.

    Just amend your records so any future correspondence goes to the new name and if ever a possession notice was required (hopefully not) there would need to be a little note in the court form explaining the difference in name. Worry about that if it’s needed though!
